Stephanie Quayle. An artist arriving on the scene of modern country music with the single "Drinking With Dolly" in impeccable timing. The vibrant blonde has a knack to captivate; whether it be a stranger, a crowded room or a packed venue. From Quayle’s radiating energy and booming personality to the passion and intensity delivered in her music, the magnetic singer-songwriter grabs hold of an audience and doesn’t let go while belting out her songs behind her guitar and piano.

Quayle captures the heart of storytelling as she offers the genre a fresh sound, relatable storylines and an invigorated presence that is unmatched in today’s musical spectrum. Harnessing the signature core of country music and pairing it with an authentic artistry, fans can expect to hear and feel exactly what they didn’t know they were missing. 

Partnering with acclaimed producer Matt McClure of the 2013 CMA “Song of the Year,” “I Drive Your Truck” by Lee Brice, Quayle’s new music for 2016 is much anticipated. Earlier singles, “That’s What I’m Talking About” and “Sugar High,” impacted the country music scene on radio and on CMT, GAC and ZUUS Country with the accompanying music videos. The Montana native’s career has taken her across the country performing on music stages alongside Jerrod Niemann, Jamie O’Neal and newcomer Jon Pardi as well as the stages of the Sundance Film Festival, NRA and CMA Music Festival. Active in competitive equine and firearm sporting events, Quayle is a regular participant in charity events aligned with the heart of the country music lifestyle. 

Growing up on a farm in Montana, Stephanie Quayle was introduced to country music by the local AM radio station that played in the background in the barn where she spent much of her time. Quayle became fascinated by the way “country stars” used slice-of-life storytelling, graceful melodies and sharp craftsmanship to impart pure emotion and bring them to life. 

Not long after high school graduation, Quayle headed to Los Angeles to pursue her music career. Her biggest hurdle, however, was to find the right audience—her audience; she packed up her bags once more and headed south to Music City. 
“In Nashville there is so much talent all over town. I am so blessed to create music with some of the greatest music minds in the world. There’s a sort of magic that happens in the music making process.”
